    The paradoxically relaxing thrill of skiing, without getting cold and wet, without having to travel up into some distant mountains, and without having to do practice a bunch of stunt combos so you can beat this track to unlock the next one. This is the Far Cry 2 of extreme sports games.

    Ubisoft deserves a round of applause for addressing the industry’s severe lack of snow sport games with something bold and ambitious. Steep might suffer from play value issues, but there’s nothing comparable. For the more than 10 million skiers and snowboarders around the world, this is a moment of liberation that should go recognized.

    It offers an enjoyable trip to the snowing mountains with 4 different extreme sports to explore and challenges along the way. You can push your limits and become king of the mountain or just enjoy the ride through beautiful landscapes and majestic scenery. It’s not only for the fans, everyone could give it a go.

    Steep has managed to exceed my expectations, and now, after a long break, we finally have a triple-A game where you can shred down an Alpine mountain on a snowboard and fly using a wingsuit.

    Technically impressive open world in the Alps, but the winter sports simulation lacks long time motivation and diversity.

    It doesn’t top the best snowboarding game ever made (Amped 3), but it does provide plenty of reasons to continue traveling the Alps. Should the trick system and technical issues be resolved in a sure to occur patch, Steep will become a must play. In its current state, however, it’s best to approach with caution.

    Dear fans of winter sports and speeding down a slope. Steep is a weak game that isn't worth your attention. The graphics are ugly, the technical side leaves a lot to be desired and the big open world is boring. Sure, it's not the worst game about skiing and snowboarding, but that's hardly a quote the developers want on the box, right?

    Played both betas when the game came out, and have to say I've been hooked from day 1. There were a few technical flaws, and the game controlPlayed both betas when the game came out, and have to say I've been hooked from day 1. There were a few technical flaws, and the game control scheme can take some getting used to, but the released game is a masterpiece. It's the type of game that can be frustrating at first, but with practice is extremely fun and rewarding. The game offers 4 different sports (Skiing, Snowboarding, Paragliding, and Wing-suiting) which give the player different ways of exploring and tricking down the mountain. I don't have a problem with the fact that it's an online only game, but can see how it would be a problem for others who are not always connected to the internet. Those looking for the next SSX, arcade-style game will be disappointed. This game strives for a more realistic and scenic take on extreme snow games, where each run has to be approached strategically. Expand

It has many bugs, glitches, technical issues and feels more like a beta than the full game which ruins it's potential for being relaxing game as all this things can really frustrate you after couple of hours of gameplay.

    The game does look quite nice, the animations are fluid and life-like. The environment is large and detailed, but could be better.

    The gameplay is fun for a few hours, but gets old fast, your mileage may vary.

    The controls can be rather clunky, mainly when you are at a stand still and want to ski / board in a certain direction and the character spins in circles, or when you want to jump off a ledge to wingsuit and the character jumps in the wrong direction.

    The UI is not great, the map view is hard to control and the pause menu is not intuitive.

    Multiplayer is quite weak. In all honesty this is a single player game, you race against other player's ghosts in challenges, so you should be able to play offline by yourself or with bots even, but you can't.

    What really hurts the experience is server connection issues preventing you from loading and playing the game. I'll be kind and assume that since I played during a free weekend the servers could not handle the stress. Late at night I didn't have any issues, but mid-day I could not connect once.

    Ubisoft should not have made this game online only and the game could benefit from a more structured campagin. I value this product at $20, $60 is a far stretch.

    Always Online = Always Negative Review

    I can't recommend a game that is Always Online. There is an option to just free ride if playing
    Always Online = Always Negative Review

    I can't recommend a game that is Always Online. There is an option to just free ride if playing Offline, but then all progress and challanges are locked. I guess that is 10% better then just having a brick if you con't have a connection, but it is not good enough.
